Fox made the X films, not Marvel Studios. Though Storm had an accent in X1.

It's almost (almost) excusable that those characters were given American accents since they all lived in the States for a significant period of time/all their lives.

T'Challa having an American accent wouldn't make any sense at all given his upbringing, t'would be a massive miss step on MS's part if they Americanized him. You'd be unnecessarily taking away an aspect of him [that's unique to big superhero films].

I just have one of those faces. People come up to me and say, "What's wrong?" Nothing. "Well, it takes more energy to frown than it does to smile." Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone? - Bill Hicks
